Ohio's #1 Credit Union

Best Credit Union in Ohio

CSE is a community credit union for Stark County, Ohio. We provide our members an alternative way of banking, one where people are more important than money and a credit score doesn't define you. We offer products and services that are designed to save members money - many of which are FREE. In 2020, 2021 and 2022, we were named Ohio's #1 Credit Union by Forbes.

We achieved our ranking based on an independent survey from participants who made recommendations regarding overall satisfaction; they also assessed credit unions in the following areas: Trust, Terms & Conditions, Branch Services, Digital Services, Customer Service, and Financial Advice.

When it comes to accessing your financial institution, we offer the same convenient banking tools to access your money anytime, anywhere. Plus, we are local, in Stark County, so when you have a question or issue, you can talk with someone right here in our community. It Takes a Credit Union to Make Banking Easy®.
